Kasper Schmeichel supposedly signed, 37yrs young. Dunno how i feel about this signing if true. HH.


1.) 12 Jul 2024 21:24:17
Hey Michael do you have a source for the info or is it just hearsay at the moment?

I would be happy enough with that if true, good keeper still, speaks the language so no communication issues, I would reckon he would give you good value for money. I remember when he played in Scotland years ago he was very good albeit was much much younger.

2.) 12 Jul 2024 21:25:10
If true Mikey, I would be happy if he was back up or playing for a season whilst we bed in the future No.1 GK.

If not, we'll be in the same position in a years time needing a first choice GK?

☘️ ? ☘️.

3.) 12 Jul 2024 21:40:00

it seems to be all over SM.

☘️ ? ☘️.

4.) 12 Jul 2024 22:45:20
Seems like this has legs. I agree with pedro on this one. But I doubt KS would be signing not to be the number 1. Would be extremely disappointed by the lack of fore sight and planning.

If the club has a recruitment model of signing and developing players, why neglect doing the same with the GK position? I understand having experience but this would be short term and cheap.

5.) 13 Jul 2024 00:28:29
I see it all over there now Pedro

Sold keeper and we will certainly get a good season out of him, obviously the other Danish guy they wanted wasn't really a deal to be done just now.

6.) 13 Jul 2024 07:25:14
Great signing bags if experience and can play for another 2 years had a great euros.

7.) 13 Jul 2024 09:29:27
A good leader and anytime I saw him with Leicester, seemed a good goalie. I'm ok with this.



01 Jan 2024 19:00:14
Ola Solbakken?

Rumoured to be close to signing? He ripped us apart when playing for Bodo a few seasons back but not did much at Roma and has just had his loan at Olympiakos cut short.

If he gets his form back from a few years back may be a top class signing.



{Ed007's Note - Solbakken's already played for Roma and Olympiacos so he can't play for another team this season, Mikey. We could buy him this month, register him as a Celtic player but he wouldn't be allowed to play any matches for us.}

1.) 01 Jan 2024 19:20:22
Maybe a no starter then! Big McKenna and Shankland it is then haha!

{Ed007's Note - ?? If this window shuts and we haven't signed McKenna I'm blocking your number mate!}

2.) 01 Jan 2024 21:46:22
Shame Solbakken is definitely the type of player we should be after.

{Ed007's Note - Maybe we can line something up for the summer.}

3.) 01 Jan 2024 21:59:04
Now might be a perfect time to get him lined up for the summer if we actually want him.

{Ed007's Note - If Roma were willing to sell him on the cheap, a free or even a loan to buy in the summer we realistically bring him in to get integrated into the squad, training, living in Scotland etc and have him up to speed for next season.
I wouldn't imagine his wages would be a problem to cover for 5/6 months of nothing considering what we do have hanging about the squad.}

4.) 01 Jan 2024 22:19:02
Is it only two teams a player can play for in a season?, I thought it changed to three. Thought I had seen teams recall a player from a loan they weren’t getting game time at and then send them out again.

{Ed007's Note - It changed during Covid but it's back to 2.}

5.) 01 Jan 2024 22:26:29
He destroyed us a couple of seasons ago, with bodo. We couldn’t get near a few of their players, a worry could be that none have done anything in the following seasons and it could have been a flash in the pan season, or they actually just fitted in well with bodo. Unlike all the other teams in the spfl we give wingers room to hurt us as we are an attacking side, it’s ok having pace but if there is 11 players sitting in front of you, there is nowhere to use the pace. For me we need a jota type winger or in fact jota who can create space by skinning a full back either way.

6.) 02 Jan 2024 12:12:52
Solbakken would be a great shout IMO.

As you say Ed, even if we could sign him and give him tine to settle and train ahead of next season.

☘️ ? ☘️.

{Ed007's Note - ??



22 Oct 2021 07:41:20
Daizan Maeda, ST from Japanese league and Yokohama Marinos looks to be arriving 1st January. Deal tied up anytime soon, HH.


1.) 22 Oct 2021 09:13:18
The guy looks rapid! His 1st touch and movement will leave players here on their @rse lol. Good signing if we can get it done.



2.) 22 Oct 2021 09:19:14
That would be brilliant Mickey because he’s played with Kyogo before which is a bonus.
Maeda has scored an impressive 18 goals this season in 30 games.
He’s an all rounder with 7 right footed goals,6 left footed goals and 5 headers.

3.) 22 Oct 2021 09:39:43
I wonder if Celtic will be able to get him signed for the New Year Derby.
January 1st is a holiday and lands on a Saturday, with the game on the Sunday.

4.) 22 Oct 2021 10:05:26
Guys the big question is will our Scottish media like MAEDA or will their Sevvie pals send out a MAYDAY.

5.) 22 Oct 2021 12:57:03
Knew this guy was going to be on our radar when Ange said he's looking at more J league players for the next window. Wonder if we'll go for Yamaguchi or Misao too.

6.) 22 Oct 2021 16:44:14
This boy plays off rhe left so might mean jota going to right, but good prob to have.

7.) 22 Oct 2021 16:49:17

From experience the powers that be are unlikely to burst a gut trying to get his signing rushed through for our game at New Year.

8.) 22 Oct 2021 18:29:04
i think we will have to give him a bit of rest buzz mate as he will have just completed a season or he might be raring to go.

9.) 22 Oct 2021 20:01:10
The last league game in the Japanese league is on December 4th and that’s good news for Ange and Celtic.
Any players from the J1 league that Celtic sign will get 4 weeks rest and then they can train with their new team mates before playing their first league match for Celtic at Tynecastle on January 26th.
It’s perfect for the second half of the season.

10.) 22 Oct 2021 20:40:36
buzz you really are the man of info buddy that is perfect for us if he signs buddy.

11.) 22 Oct 2021 22:37:31
If i was picking 3 from the J league I would pick Maeda, Samper, and Reo Hatate.
What would your 3 be buzz?

12.) 23 Oct 2021 11:49:59
Rayman, I like the look of Maeda.
I don’t really know the players in that league but I trust Ange to find Celtic another couple of gems.

13.) 23 Oct 2021 12:04:34
Yea he is rapid buzz he reminds me of Agathe in the way that he doesn't look like he is getting there then manages to accelarate again.
He would be great for us in a defensive capacity too as he chases back for everything like Kyogo does.

14.) 23 Oct 2021 14:39:14
I read that Maeda has had 9 of the 10 most sprints in a game in the J1 this season.
The only other player to get into the top 10 was Kyogo.
Maeda must run about all day, a big difference to watching Ajeti.



11 Aug 2021 10:18:44
Josip Juranovic, Croatian RB who plays for Legia Warsaw. Celtic should have deal wrapped up in next 48 hours after Legia exited Champions League last night and are desperate to raise much needed funds. Juranoivc is pushing on to be first choice RB for Croatia national team. HH.


1.) 11 Aug 2021 13:48:58
Is he good at defending which to me is a priority.



28 May 2021 16:21:49
Supposedly the Howe Deal was dead weeks ago and Celtic is now in advanced talks with Lucian Favre who in my opinion is a far more superior candidate for the role. I understand fans anger but if you look into Favre (hopefully true) you will see how good the guy is. I'm actually surprised we can get him to Scotland but if it's true I'd be over the moon. HH.


1.) 28 May 2021 16:32:14
I hope you’re correct Mikey. Farce is an excellent candidate. My question would be though if the deal was dead weeks ago, why have we waited so long to progress with Farve. It’s a rhetorical question mate, I’m not looking for an answer.

2.) 28 May 2021 16:43:24
I think Howe has just been a big smokescreen, Yes I would've liked Howe but if it's True about Favre then that's even better. If anyone on this forum had a choice between the two 99% would pick Favre and rightly so. Like I've said I understand the fans reaction but if you sit back and look at the situation and if true Farve will be announced soon we are in business with this guy as he is one of the best around. HH.

3.) 28 May 2021 16:47:55
Favre would do for me just a mess all around though IF the deal for Howe is dead. And IF it's because he couldn't assemble his back room team then that should have been sought long ago make sure everything and everyone was in place. Total disaster from a club and board point of view. Another reason a lot of that board should move over because it looks like they don't have a clue. As for Howe I am disappointed in him he could have and should have sounded out the people he wanted for his back room staff. Before stringing Celtic along.

4.) 28 May 2021 16:55:09
yeah mate i would rather Favre i dint really want howe.

5.) 28 May 2021 17:10:51
It will be interesting now if Howe gets another job, will he get the Bournemouth staff? Or will it be a deal breaker like it was for us . Will it ultimately mean we didn’t want to pay for his staff and sports scientists?

6.) 28 May 2021 17:15:21
I don't believe anything till June 2nd bit I believe there will be a shock and a good one HH.

7.) 28 May 2021 17:53:30
Hope you are right mickey. If we are only trying to get someone in now this has gone tits up we are in real trouble.

Big night ahead for the Bhoys from Bergamo tonight Atalanta!

Hopefully, they can pull off a famous result against a team unbeaten all season.



1.) 22 May 2024 20:43:11
Good start so far Michael!

2.) 22 May 2024 20:52:10
They're making a good fist of it michael up till now. a tipped them for what it's worth.

3.) 22 May 2024 21:00:22
Michael looking good at ht.

4.) 22 May 2024 21:11:13
There’s nobody paying 50million for Frimpong after this.

5.) 22 May 2024 21:26:06
It was mentioned in commentary, that Atalanta have only won One major trophy in their history and that was the 1963 Italian Cup.

It would be good to see them winning tonight, after losing the Italian cup final to Juventus last week.

6.) 22 May 2024 22:02:37
The other positive is it means they're (new Rangers) not seeded for the CL qualifiers.

7.) 22 May 2024 22:29:41
I think they still will be 9iar.

Bruges look like winning the Belgian title.
( 3pts ahead and 12 goals ahead with 1 game left )
Also Atalanta have a good chance of finishing in the top 4 which would give Benicia a CL place.

8.) 23 May 2024 14:00:53
I thought Leverkusen used him very badly, he was well capable of beating his man or excellent if ball played over the top . This didn’t happen and he wasn’t involved enough in the game .
It seems Alonso was destroyed, tactically on the night.



09 May 2024 07:48:09
Morning Everyone!

A massive night of football is ahead for me with Atalanta playing VS Marseille in the Semi-Final of the Europa League! A 1-1 draw away in France was an excellent result to take back home to Bergamo.

Hopefully, most of the site will cheer them on tonight in what would be an amazing achievement for a club of Atalanta's size to reach the final of a European competition.

The biggest week of football in many a year for me personally with this game tonight and them on Saturday.



1.) 09 May 2024 13:13:21
I’ll be watching and cheering them on tonight bud!
Also, hope ye got a ticket for Saturday!

2.) 09 May 2024 13:25:02
I hope Atalanta win for you and your friends Michael?.

3.) 09 May 2024 15:35:41
I'll be keeping an eye on that result. Heres hoping they get the win with the home advantage.

4.) 09 May 2024 15:44:18
What's your connection with Atalanta mate? I'd like to see them do it.

5.) 09 May 2024 16:25:14
Kevbhoy - No family connection or that. I started supporting them in 2001, Back When Italian football was on Channel 4!, I've made some close mates over the last 20-odd years who I meet up with when I go over every season. I'll include a link to the Gazzeta Football Italia intro that was on channel 4, everyone remembers that!

KenLikeEh - Still no ticket for Saturday, Gutted!




07 May 2024 06:36:53
Lewis Ferguson was voted midfielder of the year in Serie A this season by his fellow professionals! Some achievement for the young man! Previous award winners are players such as Danielle De Rossi, Andrea Pirlo, Paul Pogba, and Sandro Tonali. I'm happy for the young Scot and hopefully he makes a full recovery from a very bad injury.



1.) 07 May 2024 08:08:32
Giakoumakis is getting £27k a week in the MLS.
I read he was only on a basic wage of £8k a week with Celtic.

2.) 07 May 2024 14:16:49
Is this a good time to speculate on what may be true or may not be true . Has
SMSM highlighted this to cause division in our club .

3.) 07 May 2024 20:59:03
Giakoumakis, I don’t think had any chance of getting £27 k a wk at Celtic for playing last 15/ 20mins . I don’t think he could get what he wanted in Europe or he wouldn’t have headed to MLS .
He seemed to be happy to sign for whatever Celtic was paying when he signed in Aug 21. Yet was desperate to leave before end of 22. I think he can’t have been happy with the amount of game time he was getting, which would reflect his wages.



05 May 2024 15:28:54
Bring that lot on next week! We have not been great this season but my god they are honking! I firmly believe by the time we lift the title at the end of the season, we will be at least 8 points ahead with them also dropping points in a nothing game vs Hearts on the last day! Normal service resumed.

Glasgow Is Green and White!



1.) 05 May 2024 15:59:16
We’ll have to have our wits about us. VAR will be forensic triple checking for any instances when Sevco are in our penalty box, plus added time for the checks and the orange order refere as it’s their only hope in beating us.

2.) 05 May 2024 16:51:41
The Brothers in the VAR truck are desperate to help them, the two and a half minute delay after about 2 mins of the game was a total joke for Dickenson to then have a look and say its no pen.
Expect the exact same things next week, we will need to make sure that we don't give then any reason at all to get VAR involved.
I hope Brendan has AJ, Scales and Taylor training all week to make no contact interseptions as Silva, Barbie and Dessers will go down any time the wind blows and we need to make sure that we don't get any early yellow cards as that in itself could put us on the back foot
If we play like we did yesterday, we should be ok but we need a flying start.

3.) 05 May 2024 18:39:14
Our closest rivals and adversaries all season have been the referees and VAR because their pre-meditated manipulation and coercion have ensured this situation and it will escalate next week.
Celtic have to go into the game prepared and focused from the KO.

4.) 05 May 2024 16:10:46
Agree, I can’t mind who was on var, but my god they wanted to make sure they didn’t slip up, well done ref in first instance for not giving pen, on second I was ok with pen but red card I don’t understand, I thought it was changed from double punishment, fact is tho, we give them a doing every time.

5.) 05 May 2024 23:15:06
Jonbhoy, one of our difficulties this season, more than any other has been our midfielders and defenders not tackling our opponents as BR has been warning them that if they even think of getting too close to an opponent it will be a foul and probably a card . If the ref isn’t man enough to give a crazy decision on his own, the VAR Official will help him out.



03 May 2024 07:17:33
Ange is losing his cool down in the Mickey Mouse League. Looks like Villa will now get 4th with Tottenham missing out on Champions League Football. Ange has a problem tho, Arsenal, Man City, Liverpool, and Villa sitting above them, No chance Newcastle, Man Utd, and Chelsea will have another season like they've had. I think he will be gone by the end of next season.

Also a Belgian and a Greek club in the semi-finals of European competition, take note Celtic! We probs have a bigger budget than both Club Brugge and Olympiakos!


{Ed001's Note - you have nowhere near the budget of Olympiakos and their owner, who in no way ships heroin on his ships as he didn't know about those containers and no one can say he did. Well apart from the 12 witnesses that mysteriously vanished after a completely innocent and unconnected burning of a bakery owned by one. Olympiakos have his other club Nottm Forest buying players for them when they are hamstrung by FFP. So they have a large budget, and none of it for buying off officials I am sure, because their owner is such a good guy.}

1.) 03 May 2024 08:19:29
Ange did the same at Celtic when players played the ball back.

Ange accepts that players make mistakes but he does not accept playing the ball back.

Not sure I would say he is losing it, he is just letting the players know that he will not accept them not following his instructions.

2.) 03 May 2024 13:47:51
Surely weejoe, the time to correct the players playing the ball backwards is on the training pitch or in the dressing room before the match . Showing your temper during the match like Ange did last night, is just showing “a bit of look at me, what I have to put up with and publicly blaming players. ”He did very well at Celtic holding back on tantrums and coaching and guiding his players to success . That’s Ange’s strength, , I hope he doesn’t destroy his reputation by coming across as an angry old man.

3.) 03 May 2024 14:57:16
I hope he comes back?.

4.) 03 May 2024 15:35:56
He did the same thing at celtic tbf des shouting from the sidelines when we went backwards.

5.) 03 May 2024 17:58:01
His tactical style and philosophy gave me and others a lot of enjoyment while he was at Celtic and I think our supporters have always craved attacking football with flair and players on the front-foot. Although I'm not that interested in what's happening at Tottenham, I would really prefer us to be less side to side and back like I have seen in too many games this season, considering we still have the nucleus of last season's squad. Maybe there's still time?

6.) 04 May 2024 04:11:43
I think Ange has maybe underestimated the difficulty in managing players on the money these guys are and the fees they think they're worth and the drama it can cause. He had a great start but Villa have been ordinary this last half of the season as well but they can grind out results and get points on the board, for Spurs it seems a bit more hit and miss whether the game pans out the way they want. I don't see them taking control as much as we know Ange wants.

When people play for us, they play for the badge, the fans, we have an identity as a club and how we want to play. We have a team, a squad of winners who know how to do it. Spurs don't have anyone really who you can say is as passionate about spurs as say calmac, JF, Ralston, Hart are about playing for Celtic, with the closest being Son.

7.) 04 May 2024 08:42:18
If only we had a manager just now, who would lose his cool at the team passing back.

Why would we sign a proven Scottish Internationalist at a very good age for free when we could sign an unknown from another country for 3/ 4mill and hope for the best? This is Celtic we are talking about.

In the past, we have signed players like Steven Pressley and Gary Caldwell and while they were certainly no world beaters they were solid and gave 7/ 10+ every game they played.

Celtic's transfer policy in recent times is terrible, they get lucky with the odd gem (jota, van Dijk) but you need to look at some of the players we currently have in the club to realise how bad it has been in recent years.

Kwon, Kobayashi, and Ideguchi to name a few are some of the worst players I've seen in a Celtic jersey. Thankfully it looks like all 3 will be off the book by the end of the month.

If Joe Hart is our no1 for the season we are in serious trouble. Again I’ll reiterate, Nothing against Joe Hart as a person as he seems a decent guy. But as a GK he is nowhere near good enough to be Celtic number 1.
